No Man's Land: Louisian's Final Frontier

No Man’s Land, also known as the Neutral Strip, located in western Louisiana along the Texas border once served as a buffer zone between Spanish-owned Texas and the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase of the United States. Originally home to outlaws and known as a notoriously tough and isolated place, today the region exhibits a culture defined by several diverse folk groups, including Native Americans, African Americans, Scots-Irish pioneers, and descendants of early Spanish colonists. Join us as we explore the history, the natural beauty, and the various cultures that make up Louisiana’s No Man’s Land.

*All pre-FAM’s require light to moderate walking and climbing a flight of stairs.
